DBS-Based Assay Effective in Hepatitis C Diagnosis and Treatment for At Risk Populations

Detecting the hepatitis C virus in dried blood spot (DBS) samples can be difficult during early reinfection, as these samples contain only a small amount of blood. Now, a new study to investigate a minimally invasive DBS-based test for monitoring HCV infection in people who inject drugs has found that using DBS samples for HCV RNA detection and genotyping effectively evaluates treatment outcomes and distinguishes between reinfection and treatment failure.

PCR Panels for Acute GI Infections Can Lower Costs, Hospitalization and Antibiotic Use

A new study comprising 40,000 hospital visits across various geographic locations has revealed that a single stool sample analysis using multiple polymerase chain reaction (PCR) panels is capable of identifying more pathogens, especially diarrhea-causing E. coli and enteric viruses, faster than a traditional diagnostic workup. More...

New Ventless Device Addresses Significant Challenge of Blood Culture Contamination

Contaminated blood cultures create a significant problem, resulting in unnecessary antibiotics being administered to patients, longer hospital stays and a negative impact on larger community health issues, like antimicrobial resistance and life-threatening C. diff. infections. Now, a new ventless device with its unique design, speed, and ease of use can help hospitals address the significant challenge of blood culture contamination. More...
